How do I become a commercial real estate broker? What does it take?

I'm one year out of college. I understand that I need formal training, to pass an exam, get a license, etc. But I'd like to get some advice and tips from brokers who've been in the business for a while. What does it take to be successful? How do you do it better than everyone else? Thanks in advance!

In short. Find a specialty stick to it and learn all you can about that specialty. Then find an established broker who needs an assistant and let them mentor you. Also research companies and go with a national firm that has amazing training and networking. I work for RE/MAX Commercial in the San Francisco bay area with 16 years in the business I have never been with a more progressive training & network focussed brand. Feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions
